When our church first started our logo was “Where Jesus is Lord and you are Loved.” We love Jesus more than anything on this earth and desire to be like Him. Jesus loves the rich, the poor, and everyone in-between. He doesn’t play favorites when folks come to Him and give their lives to Him. We want as many people as possible to meet the Jesus of the Bible and serve Him with all their hearts and experience that same kind of love in their everyday life.
Where We Came From
Our church started when founding Pastor John Petit felt a call to Watertown, NY in 1986 trusting God to bring him a wife and family as he obeyed Him with all his heart. A man named Ed was the first attendee. Ed, a former alcoholic, found a place where he was loved and accepted as he learned about Jesus despite a former life filled with regret. Thankfully others came as well and like Ed found God’s grace at the cross. A fond memory of Ed is his frequent request to sing the “Old Rugged Cross” as it reminded him of Jesus’s great love for us and the gift of grace.
Where We Are Headed
As we move forward in our history, we still desire that folks would see the love of Jesus in us and that we would allow God to use us as instruments both in our city and around the world to share the gospel of Christ and His love to each individual just as we did with Ed. We want to allow Jesus to shine in our everyday lives through worship, praise, Bible teaching, His character, and most of all the manifest presence of God.
